Dembele pushing for Peterborough return

Peterborough boss Steve Evans will make few changes for the visit of League One bottom club Bradford.

Forward Siriki Dembele could come in for George Cooper as Evans seeks to rotate some of his options following the FA Cup win over Bromley.

Veteran Cameroon defender Sebastien Bassong played the full 90 minutes in the Checkatrade Trophy win over Luton and could be in contention.

Defender Ryan Tafazolli is expected to be fit despite a recent back problem, while Josh Yorwerth has been absent because of personal issues.

Bradford’s bid to end a seven-match losing streak in League One has been boosted by the return to contention of Danny Devine and Jim O’Brien.

Defender Adam Chicksen is available again following a one-match suspension for his sending off against Portsmouth.

Midfielder Sean Scannell (back) is out, while City are seeking to sign former Scotland defender Paul Caddis in time to feature.

The Bantams drew with non-League Aldershot in the FA Cup first round and boss David Hopkin may make changes in a bid to end a run of nine matches without a win in all competitions.
